TV Shows Last Comic Standing
1 Hi-energy with lots of facial expressions
1 It’s kind of funny how that happened. When I was a child, I had a dream of one day becoming very influential and being in the entertainment world. I really wanted badly for that to happen, and in the last couple of years, my manager told me I was nominated for the group of the Most Influential Vietnamese-American Individuals in the world, along with generals and ambassadors and surgeons. It’s an honor. It’s mind-boggling. I’m a college dropout; I’m a high school failure, someone who came from a homeless background, but I understand the American pop culture and doing comedy from my heart led me to be in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C.
2 I was living under a desk in West Hollywood. It was a closet that I shared with another comic. I was shocked when they called me to come in to try out for the show. The chances of me getting on a TV show and winning it is like one-in-a-million. I had only been doing comedy for six years at that point, so I was basically considered an open mic-er or maybe a feature act once in awhile.
3 When you grow up poor, you have to either work really hard to try and get where you want to be, or you’ll just stay put.
4 I knew comedy was the thing for me when I was the only Asian kid in high school… who failed math.
1 Has a star on Grossmont College’s Walk of Fame.
2 Tours the U.S. as a headlining comedian.
3 Attended West Hills High School in Santee, California.
4 Practices Northern Shaolin Green Dragon Kung Fu.
5 Was inspired directly by Benny Hill and John Ritter. Indirectly, by Johnny Carson.
6 Credits his mom for keeping him out of gangs as a child.
7 Lived out of his car while homeless in Los Angeles/Orange County, before he made it on Last Comic Standing.
8 Started stand-up comedy after taking a speech class in college.
9 Included in The Smithsonian Institution’s exhibition of The Top 10 Most Influential Vietnamese-American Individuals.
10 Winner of _”Last Comic Standing” (2003)_.
